pentagon correspondent barbara starr. she's getting new information on paula broadwell. what are you learning, barbara? >> wolf, some really stunning new information. cnn has learned from two u.s. officials that paula broadwell's security clearance has been suspended. she is a serving reservist, if you will, with the u.s. army, a military intelligence analyst. as such, she would at least have a secret level security clearance. we are now told that security clearance suspended pending the outcome of several investigations. we went to the army to ask them for an official response. they will not say anything except the following. and let me read it to you. "appropriate actions with regard to this officer's clearance and access have been taken." the statement goes onto say "the army has been cooperating with federal law enforcement authorities in this matter. and those actions are ongoing." wolf, you will recall a couple of days ago the fbi went to broadwell's home. we all saw the video of fbi agents taking away boxes of material, computers. the discussion centering around what kind of c
investigation into this biographer paula broadwell. what can you tell us about this at this point? >> the fbi has opened up an investigation to determine whether paula broadwell had access to general petraeus' e-mail. general petraeus is not under investigation and they don't expect their inquiry will result in criminal charges. now, we have reached out to paula broadwell. we haven't heard back from her yet. she is, of course, at the center of this scandal. so who is she? she is a harvard graduate, also went to west point and she wrote this biography that i have here in my hands. it's called "all in," the education of general petraeus. it's a thick book but i want to read a lig sellment. she says, his critics fault him for ambition. i will note that he is driven and goal-orient d. so just one sentence in a very thick book that is now of course coming under a lot of scrutiny. to give you a sense of how this all came to light, we're told that the white house learned about this situation with general petraeus on wednesday, which was, of course, the day after the election. general petraeus had a
that stumbled upon petraeus' affair with his biographer, paula broadwell. two experts from the fbi on why president obama didn't learn of the investigation for six months. let's go "outfront." >>> i'm erin burnett. good evening. "outfront" tonight, a scandal turns more bizarre. new details tonight on the petraeus scandal. the white house, forced to take a stand. not on david petraeus, but on another four-star general, john allen. america's top commander in afghanistan. he was set to become the nato supreme commander, until the president put that nomination on hold today. like petraeus, allen is at the top of the american military. he's a four-star general. one of only four four-star generals in the entire u.s. marine corps. officials are investigating general john allen after finding allegedly inappropriate e-mails between general allen and jill kelley. the same jill kelley who had contacted the fbi about receiving harassing e-mails from petraeus biographer and former mistress, paula broadwell. allen, who once worked for petraeus at the u.s. central command, denies any wrongdoing as inves
petraeus meets paula broadwell, a west point graduate and doctoral student, after giving a speech at harvard. fast forward to may of this year. another woman, jill kelley, a friend of petraeus and his wife, begins receiving harassing e-mails. she asks a friend at the fbi to help launch an investigation. the e-mails, it is eventually discovered are being sent by broadwell. the fbi also discovers that broadwell and petraeus have been having an affair. meanwhile, the fbi agent who kelley approached grows frustrated after he's kept off the case. his supervisors reportedly are concerned that he has, quote, grown obsessed with the matter. it's also uncovered that he has sent shirtless photos of himself to kelley. that agent contacts republican congressman david reichert to air his frustrations. reichert then passes the information on to house majority leader eric cantor who speaks with the fbi whistle-blower in late october. it turns out that another major military figure, general john allen, the commander of u.s. and nato troops in afghanistan and petraeus' successor in that position,
. the fbi uncovered evidence of an affair between petraeus and his biographer paula broadwell, after she allegedly sent harassing e-mails to another woman she jealously thought was too close to petraeus. new york congressman peter king says there are far more questions than answers. >> this seems to have been going on for several months. yet now it appears that they're saying that the fbi didn't realize until election day that general petraeus was involved. it just doesn't add up. and you've got this type of investigation, the fbi investigating e-mails, the e-mails leading to the cia director, and it's taking four months to find out that the cia director was involved. >> cnn's barbara starr is following this developing story, she's live at the pentagon for us. good morning. tell us, what is the status of the investigation right now? >> well, good morning, alina. "the new york times" is now reporting this morning that the investigation actually began some months ago. but, again, the questions continue to mount. it wasn't until election night that the director of national intelligence, jam
was an extramarital affair between petraeus and his biographer, paula broadwell. and of course so many questions about where this goes from here. joining me now for the latest on this developing story, the "washington post's" bob woodward and our own chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell who broke the story as i mentioned on friday. so andrea, here we are on sunday morning, new details. we know there was someone close to petraeus who got threatening e-mails. a whistleblower. she goes to the fbi. and that's how they get to the affair. >> this other woman, and we know she's not in the government and that she's not a family member, complained to the fbi about what she felt were harass k and threatening e-mails. it was that investigation that led -- they were anonymous e-mails. that led to broadwell's e-mail account. and by examining broadwell's, paula broadwell the biographer's e-mail account that's they uncovered or stumbled as they put it into this -- >> there were actually explicit e-mails between broadwell and petraeus. >> or some indication in those e-mails of an ongoing relationship.
's e-mail account. and by examining broadwell's, paula broadwell the biographer's e-mail account that's they uncovered or stumbled as they put it into this -- >> there were actually explicit e-mails between broadwell and petraeus. >> or some indication in those e-mails of an ongoing relationship. that's according to fbi officials and other officials with whom we've spoken. it was that -- and we should stress, there was never an investigation into petraeus. and they have pretty much shut down any idea that there was any kind of security or national security leaks. so this is not a criminal matter. and it would have rested there had not, and this is what is new in the last 24 hours, had not it come to the attention from an fbi whistleblower to a member of congress, who then reported to eric cantor, the republican leader, who then said to the fbi, you have to take this further. they were not at that stage going to the white house with it. and there are a lot of questions raised, why did it first come to the attention of the head of national intelligence on tuesday at 5:00 on election day
commander of nato. we're also hearing more from paula broadwell. mistress of david petraeus and petraeus, of course, was general john allen's predecessor in afghanistan. i know this is confusing. he retired from the military to take up the directorship of the cia, which catapulted this story to the top of the list. he quit last friday when his affair was exposed through anonymous e-mails that broadwell sent to remember that woman at the beginning of the show? jill kelley? she sent the e-mails to jill kelley and the most pressing questions is whether mrs. broadwell got her hands on some secret military information that she sure as heck was not entitled to see and that's why the fbi did this. late at night, fbi agents raiding mrs. broadwell's north korea home on monday. it's why a 16-month panel discussion that might never have seen the light of day at the aspen institute all of a sudden now becomes very interesting. some added cig significance, shall we saw, because mrs. broadwell talked about being in general petraeus' inner circle in afghanistan. >> and i was embedded with general petra
investigating, and this is an ongoing investigation, into paula broadwell. she e is someone who has had close access to general petraeus. she was his biographer and wrote a book on general petraeus called "all in." she's spent extensive time with him in afghanistan and made television appearances talking about the general. she says she's gone running with him. the fbi investigation is seeing whether she had improper access to general petraeus's e-mails and may have had access to his -- may have accidentally or deliberately had access to classified information. >> here's paula broadwell talking about general petraeus in january of this year. >> when i was in kabul, we did a lot of interviews on runs. it was a good distraction from the war. he's a bit concerned as someone in his position would be about legacy and came at it and wanted to help me with this project. >> according to slate, president obama agonized for 24 hours before accepting general petraeus's resignation. let's bring in former congressman joe sustec and also worked in navy intelligence. good to have you with us tonight. this is
brought this to light. >> we now know from a u.s. official that it was a complaint from paula broadwell was sending harassing e-mails to another woman close to the cia director that prompted the fbi to investigate. also we know that the investigation led to the discovery of e-mails between broadwell and petraeus that indicated the affair. now, that second woman hasn't been identified, and the official we spoke with didn't know the nature of that woman's relationship with the former director. but more details are. going out about the timeline of events and when u.s. officials were notified of the circumstances of this investigation. a senior u.s. intelligence official tells the cnn that the fbi informed the director of national intelligence james clapper about the investigation on tuesday night, election night, just as some polls were beginning to close and director clapper as a friending colleague, fellow officer, and admirer, urged petraeus to step down from his position. we know as well from that intelligence source that director clapper informed the white house on wednesday and then,
much. >> several news organizations have reported that the woman is paula broadwell, who is his biographer who took a tv tour, went on "the daily show" with jon stewart, talking about general petraeus, about what great man he is, and supposedly an fbi investigation started by i'm she had written led to general petraeus having to step down. you're saying there were rumors in the press box. >> rumors but maybe questions about why she was so close to a four-star general who was running the war in afghanistan. they never got answers. in fact, the public affairs people said it'snothing, he's just mentoring her. sthad to me last night, one of the public affairs office, they never went to petraeus and said, hey, they're asking questions about her, which would have been an appropriate thoing do for a public affairs person. that never happened. but let me just continue. petraeus knew three weeks ago that the fbi was onto this affair, okay? the honorable thing to do three weeks ago would have been to resign, not wait until the owned testify election. you know, we teach our clients in 15 s
a farfetched plot from the cable soap "army wives." now another woman is involved that paula broadwell allegedly sent her these harassing e-mails because of her friendship with the general. how does the military community make sense of all of this? >> i think the most important thing to remember about the petraeus family is that they have spent their entire marriage working for the military. holly petraeus is so well known for her work with predatory lenders and trying to end the military foreclosures on homes. this is a family that is known for fighting for the military family itself. >> i just can't even imagine how mrs. petraeus is feeling this morning. i want to talk a little bit more about ms. broadwell, though. she's military herself. she wrote a book on the general. she used that book -- she used that to plug her book on comedy central's jon stewart. she's writing her dissertation on the general. even after the affair is over allegedly writes harassing e-mails to a woman who knows the general. what do you make of her? >> what i think is important about that relationship is we've
between petraeus and his biographer paula broadwell. broadwell was linking to the investigation, but it's not clear at the time how. >> to paraphrase yogi berra, it's not over until it's over. cnn says it's over in florida with some provisional votes to be counted. barack obama has the lead with just over 75,000 votes. he has a final tally of 332. >> this weekend, americans will honor those who have served in the arms forces. this is fayetteville, but scenes like this are playing out all across the country. tomorrow, the president will lay a wreath at the tomb of the unzoneu unzones. >> the marine corps is celebrating a big birthday. today is the marine corps's 237th anniversary. a committee of the congress -- continental congress formed the marines in 1775 to fight in the revolutionary war. >>> after the headlines, these stories are trending now on cnn.com today. it looks like post election fallout. murray energy an ohio coal company said it has been forced to lay off 160 workers. it blames the bleak economic prospects facing the coal industry as the president heads into a second term.
-mails between paula broadwell and david petraeus. broadwell is the woman who wrote his biography. the fbi looks to see whether his communications had been compromised, and they said they had not been. now, petraeus was interviewed by the fbi, but it's not clear if broadwell has been questioned and if she will be. a u.s. official said petraeus was never a target of an investigation and that a tip about an affair led to that probe. now, general petraeus was scheduled to testify next week about the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. now what happens now that he's gone? suzanne kelly is in washington with that part of this big story. >> susan, as washington reels from the announcement not only that david petraeus is stepping down from the post, but also from the admission he was having an extramarital affair, a u.s. official has said the counter intelligence unit was investigating a tip that he was having an affair because they needed to determine whether there was a potential security risk. the official telling cnn there was no suggestion that the fbi was investigating petraeus for any possibl
in an extramarital affair with paula broadwell. she is his biographer. broadwell spent a year with petraeus in afghanistan interviewing him for the book she co-wrote about him. it's not clear whether broadwell is the woman with whom petraeus has admitted to having this affair that led to this resignation. the official says that the fbi counterintelligence unit investigated the tip to see if there was a potential security risk, whether petraeus could possibly be blackmailed. the official tells cnn there was no suggestion the fbi was investigating petraeus for any possible wrongdoing, but the concern, rather, was that he might be putting himself in a vulnerable position. >> we know that a lot of the questions from online that i've read, some of the comments on cnn.com, there's questions about the timing. let's start with what it comes after, the presidential election. what if we found out about that connection, if any, and why this comes just days after the election? >> reporter: well, that's a great question and i think a lot of those questions will be thrown at the white house, and they hav
for interviews. nor has paula broadwell. still a lot of unanswered questions with her. in terms of has she had her wings clipped in this, i will tell you that my colleague barbara starr was able to confirm yesterday from u.s. officials that her security clearances have been suspended pending the outcome of the fbi investigation. of but we're also hearing from fran townsend who is our national security contributor that the information that they were hauling out, you remember the pictures from paula's home on monday night, the fbi was there for about five hours, the information they were hauling out according to fran is nothing really egregious. it may not even lead to formal charges against her. but of course, the decision on whether or not they will charge her anything will come from the department of justice. >> what about suzanne kelley. >> you mean jill kelley. not me. that's how many players we're trying to juggle. >> suzanne kelly. jill kelley's incredible access to the air force base has also been curtailed. all the while, there is this fbi agent in the tampa field office named fred hump
is the access that these women, jill kelley and paula broadwell seemed to have to them. have they had their wings clipped? >> well, this is such a fascinating discussion in so many different directions you can take on it. it was great reporting from kyra phillips that you just played a few minutes ago. there are still some really tough questions even for general petraeus. he didn't come public about this. he didn't come clean. he didn't start apologizing till after he was caught. i think we do have to offer a little bit of pushback. he hasn't made himself available for interviews. nor has paula broadwell. still a lot of unanswered questions with her. in terms of has she had her wings clipped in this, i will tell you that my colleague barbara starr was able to confirm yesterday from u.s. officials that her security clearances have been suspended pending the outcome of the fbi investigation. of but we're also hearing from fran townsend who is our national security contributor that the information that they were hauling out, you remember the pictures from paula's home on monday night, th
. they confirm to cnn that the investigators have been exploring tips on an affair with paula broadwell, his biographer. they tried to see if there was a potential security risk, in other words to see if petraeus could possibly be black mailed. petraeus is a highly respected, retired four-star general who commanded forces in both iraq and afghanistan. he was sworn in to run the cia a little over a year ago with vice president biden with his wife holly at his side. that was the swearing in. they've been married 35 years, have two grown kids. so how will this revelation exact the u.s. intelligence community? joining me now is fran townsend and bob baer and suzanne kelly. suzanne, what more can you tell us about the probe into the relationship with paula broadwell? do we know how long this has been going on? >> we don't know how long it was going on, but just the -- so they're the ones that would look into accusations of inappropriate access to classified information. individuals that hold clearances, are they doing what they need to be doing to make sure that information stays safe? is there a
there is an ongoing leak investigation, which is why fbi agents were searching paula broadwell's home. so he's left himself some room there. he mentioned the protocols and withholding judgment. what he's referencing is a 2007 attorney general memo that talks about communications between the white house and the justice department on criminal investigations. that they're supposed to be between the attorney general and the deputy attorney general, with the white house counsel, and the deputy white house counsel. we don't know those communications take place and, by the way, this memo, says the most important thing is that there should be no inhibition to those communications when it affects national security or espionage. which means if somebody was hiding behind this memo to not tell the white house, they probably were wrong. and i think the president is waiting -- withholding judgment, but likely they should have told him. >> all right, everybody stand by. because there is a lot more to do, to discuss including the president, what i thought the president's very generous comments to mitt romney, his
by paula broadwell, petraeus' biographer. petraeus' downfall started when kelly complained to the fbi that she was receiving e-mails from broadwell. multiple officials tell nbc news the e-mails led to the discovery of others between general petraeus and broadwell and were indicative of an extramarital affair. >> my first reaction was disbelief. >> petraeus' former spokesperson and served with him in iraq and spoke tine petraeus twice this weekend and said his former boss is remorseful. >> in his word he screwed up. >> reporter: senior law enforcement official told nbc news that fbi officials interviewed petraeus. today members of congress are asking why the fbi did not inform them or the president sooner. >> this is something that could have had an effect on national security. i think we should have been told. >> this comes as we are learning more about the days leading up to petraeus' resignation. house majority leader, eric cantor said he was tipped off about the situation, however the president first learned about the incident on thursday. the day petraeus offered his resignation.
